“Brick Mansions” are what the projects in Detroit are called in this action packed film. When the mayor of the city decides to build expensive apartments on the site he plots to destroy the current buildings and all of the people inside. A bomb is stolen by some thugs and they intend to send it into the heart of the city so an undercover detective is sent in to disarm it — or so he thinks.
There aren’t many twists or turns in the film other that those exhibited by two men who perform amazing feats of leaping, jumping, somersaults and fighting. The fight scenes were not overly graphic but there was a bit of blood. Unfortunately, the plot was all to predictable and the content not appropriate for family viewing.
